Free Orca Morgan

    1. Petition by

      Proyecto Gran Simio (GAP-PGS-España)

Great Ape project (GAP/PGS-Spain) pleads for Morgan, the killer whale, to be returned to her habitat, once healed from the wounds.

Her capture was made under the claim to heal her wounds, but there is currently no reason for her to live in captivity in a Spanish zoo, since circus shows make these species turn into wild clowns confined to tiny spaces and make them do tricks inappropriate for their species.

Morgan is a killer whale born free, she can perfectly cope in her inhabitant once recovered of her wounds.

For this reason, Great Ape Project (GAP/PGS-Spain), urges the European Union to transfer Morgan from Loro Parque Zoo in Tenerife (Canarias, Spain) where she currently lives back to her in habitat and her family group, otherwise she will live in captivity without the possibility to be reinserted for the rest of her life.

      Morgan and all other Orcas are very social and even more family oriented then we are. No Orca should be in a tank. taking them from their family is a traumatic event for them. Just ask a human mother how she feels when CPS takes her children. I highly recommend you watch Blackfish. Everyone should watch Blackfish. Lolita needs to be freed too. And Tilikum needs a Sea Pen so he can feel the natural rhythm of the home he was kidnapped from. God made the ocean for our sea life and the land for us. Man made the tanks.

      Orcas are not circus acts what's important here that Morgan was taken in because she was poorly in health. Instead of let her free they send her to Teneriff where she's not cared for at all. This is pure cruelty against a Wild Animal. She's not even born in Captivity. This must stop Morgan needs to be free.

      This poor guy is alone. This is not normal. The same for Lolita. These two Orcas are alone. They need to be rehabilitated aka taught to catch live food, aka hunt again. to use the skills God gave them. Sonar. These animals swim for miles. They need to be rehabilitated and released. All the Whales in Capitivaty.
